the Centers for Disease Control reports that Pennsylvania has the second highest mesothelioma death rate in the country. 2,779 people in Pennsylvania died from mesothelioma between 1999 and 2015. The mesothelioma death rate is highest in the areas surrounding Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Workers in Pennsylvania who are employed in the shipbuilding, steel, railroad, and mining industries are at highest risk of being exposed to asbestos.Asbestos Exposure at Pennsylvania Power Plants
Before it was discovered that asbestos exposure can result in several deadly types of cancer, power plants placed asbestos in various types of machinery including boilers, tanks, and pumps. Some of the power plants in Pennsylvania where workers were exposed to asbestos include:
Much like the power plant industry, oil refineries in Pennsylvania relied on asbestos for many years due to the material’s fire and heat resistant nature. Some of the oil refineries in Pennsylvania where workers are known to have been exposed to asbestos include:
While Pennsylvania is not a coastal state, there is a substantial shipbuilding industry in Pennsylvania that relies on the state's access to the Atlantic Ocean through the Delaware River. Before the dangers of asbestos were widely known, asbestos was used in numerous machinery found at shipyards including boilers, turbines, and gaskets. Some of the shipyards in Pennsylvania where workers were exposed to asbestos include:
Pennsylvania is home to Pittsburgh, which is known by many as "The Steel City." Because the steelmaking process requires the constant use of high heat and flames, asbestos played an important role in the industry before it was discovered that the exposure to the substance can result in several deadly forms of cancer. Some of the metalworks in Pennsylvania where workers were exposed to asbestos include:
There are 41 asbestos deposits or mines in Pennsylvania. There are also many asbestos containing materials in Pennsylvania because the substance was used in a large number of construction projects before it was determined that prolonged or frequent exposure to asbestos can result in several deadly forms of cancer. In its resting state, however, asbestos is often not dangerous. If the material is disrupted in any way, its fibers can come loose and are at risk of being inhaled, which can cause serious damage later on in life. Many people are not even aware that they have been exposed to asbestos until years or decades later when a deadly mesothelioma diagnosis is made.Speak With an Experienced Mesothelioma Lawyer
